DASSEL, COKATO, MN – The Dassel-Cokato High School gymnasium was the site of the Minnesota Percussion Association’s winter drumline competition March 17.

Most people are probably familiar with summer drum corps. But what is winter drumline? The MPA states “the modern indoor marching percussion idiom is characterized by pageantry and visual performance elements.”

In other words, winter drumlines serve up spectacular feats for the senses. Each drumline’s program tells a short story through music, precisely choreographed marching and movement, and the enthusiasm and showmanship of every member of the team.

When all was said and done March 17, DC’s drumline, and their performance of this year’s show “Activate,” had earned another first-place finish in their class.

DC selects new high school principal

DASSEL, COKATO, MN – Although there were several high-quality applicants interested in the principal position at Dassel-Cokato High School (DCHS), Superintendent Jeff Powers told staff members that Christopher Meisch was “clearly [the district’s] first choice.”

For Meisch, education has always been part of his life, having two parents as teachers and, he credits, having been raised in Wabasha.

“Growing up in Wabasha helped me to fully understand at a young age the significant role that family, community, support, academic rigor, and teamwork play in the educational process,” Meisch stated in a letter of introduction he wrote to DCHS staff.
